We carry on the traditions of our founders by focusing our charitable efforts in three areas within the City of New York: education, Irish Arts & Culture, and, in keeping with our origins, legal immigration services. The Society holds several events throughout the year for the purposes of charitable fundraising and social engagement amongst our membership.
